The geothermal heat pump market is a diverse and complicated theater. There are units purpose built for residential, commercial, and light industrial applications. Within these broad categories there exists a range of different efficiency ratings, standard and optional features, varied installation types, and multiple operating applies like radiant heating, desuperheating, reverse cycle chilling, and more.
So, if you have questions, our geothermal heat pump reviews have answers. Let’s talk about the FHP WT Series Geothermal Water-to-Water Heat Pump.
The FHP WT Series is built with the commercial market in mind. It’s a two-stage unit with high efficiency operation, eco-safe R-410A refrigerant, can meet the needs of most high end hydronic systems.
The typical WT Series heat pump comes with features like a heavy gauge base floating on a unique high density visco-elastic sound barrier, multi-density sound blanket for the compressor, fully insulated heavy gauge steel cabinet, and radiant floor system compatibility.
This geosource unit is meant for commercial consumers, so a residential homeowner is best served looking elsewhere.
The FHP WT Series is not outrageously priced, but very few geothermal systems can be considered cheap.
The FHP WT Series Geothermal Water-to-Water Heat Pump could be a good fit in an existing commercial hydronic system or as part of a radiant floor heating installation. The unit is built in FHP’s ISO 9001:2000 certified facilities, and runs at a relatively high efficiency rating thanks to its dual-stage compressor.
